The New Year is an opportunity to start fresh with new habits that support our well being. We can redefine and realign our actions with what is most important. This 6 week iRest Yoga Nidra class will focus on building a regular practice of iRest, and committing to what matters most in our lives.
Many of us set intentions or resolutions at the beginning of the New Year. These intentions are a refocusing of our efforts to live more in concert with our values and desires, as well as taking better care of ourselves. This 6 week series will focus on developing our Sankalpa-the intention that informs the way we live our lives. As we learn to quiet the nervous system through the practice of iRest, we open to the hearing the deeper calling of our hearts.
iRest Yoga Nidra is a form of mindfulness meditation that is easily learned and practiced. iRest invites us to connect to the deeper stillness that is always present.
